Dental veneers are the treatment of choice for celebrities and many others who want a fast, simple way to completely change their smile. These cosmetic restorations cover flaws and create a brand-new look for your smile. Is the cost of veneers really worth it? There is no single answer for every patient.
Questions to ask yourself before getting veneers:
1. Are you unhappy with your smile?
If you feel down every time you look in the mirror because of chips, gaps, or discolorations, that might be reason enough to want veneers. Your smile should make you feel good, and if it doesn’t, veneers can be a great way to fix that.
2. Do you want a permanent cosmetic change?
A small amount of enamel must be removed to place veneers, which means these are a permanent restoration. If you are more interested in temporary changes, you might consider no-prep veneers or other treatment options.
3. Do you take care of your smile?
Veneers do not eliminate the need for good dental care. In fact, excellent dental habits are needed to maintain your teeth after veneers have been placed in order to protect your smile and your veneers.
If you answer “yes” to all of these questions, then the benefits of veneers will likely be well worth the investment. Call our office today to schedule your consultation with our porcelain veneer dentist.
